Flashpoint Tests the Team — Will It Crack?

Flashpoint

The new season of Flashpoint puts family first — both on the job and in the characters' homes.

Check out photos of the Flashpoint cast

"The overview theme of the season is about family and how we're all connected," series star Enrico Colantoni tells TVGuide.com "When there are family situations that we deal with, we actually show how it affects us. The show certainly isn't about that, but you get a stronger sense of how my team reacts to the job and how they take it home, which is probably the most authentic thing about our show."

Colantoni plays Greg Parker, a crisis negotiator and the leader of the Strategic Response Unit. His dedication to his job led to the crumbling of his own family... read more

CBS President: "We Have a High Level of Concern" for Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen

CBS President Nina Tassler said she is definitely worried about Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen.

The personal life of Sheen, currently television's highest-paid actor, has long been a source of controversy, and in recent months he's appeared in the tabloid headlines almost non-stop. Police officers were called to Sheen's allegedly destroyed New York hotel room last October, he's filed for divorce with his wife Brooke Mueller, and last weekend he reportedly went on a bender with multiple escorts.

Poll: How long should CBS continue to stand behind Charlie Sheen?

"Well, I really didn't expect that question this morning. I'm really taken by surprise," Tassler deadpanned at the Television Critics Associaton winter previews Friday. But Tassler then turned sincere.

"I personally have thought a lot about this. And we have a high level of concern. How could we not?" she said... read more

Ask Matt: Terriers, Community, Glee, CSI: Miami, Chuck and More!

Donal Logue

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Couldn't agree with you more regarding Terriers. This has fast become one of my favorite shows. The problem is that the show is not the show that the promotions (what little there was) showed us. I could have done without the "quirky detectives on the beach" show in the promos, but this show is no more about private detectives than Friday Night Lights is about football. Virtually every scene with Hank Dolworth and his sister (played by Donal Logue and HIS sister!) was heartbreaking. Is it too early to contact DirecTV with a candidate for the 101 Network? — Rick

Matt Roush: Let's hope it doesn't come to that. Yet. I'm hoping FX will decide to ... read more

Matt Passmore, The Glades

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I am a long-time follower of your columns and reviews, and I just want to thank you for all the great series you have steered me toward over the years. The latest is Breaking Bad, which I never would have gone near if not for your raves. What an amazing show. Now I'm wondering if you have been watching The Glades and what you think of its development. Being from South Florida, I am always curious about shows located there. Most shows don't get the feel of the place (we won't even speak of that CSI show), but this one seems to be doing it right so far. And talk about someone coming out of left field: Where did this amazing guy Matt Passmore come from? Because I know he is Australian, I'll forgive his lack of a Chicago accent, but he has developed such an interesting and believable character (thank you also, writers) and is such a charismatic lead. After Lost, I never thought I could appreciate Kiele Sanchez in anything, but I am enjoying her performance as well. Thanks again for all the enjoyable hours of TV and please keep writing your columns! — Susan

Matt Roush: Well, thanks for that encouraging feedback. With The Glades, I'll fess up that I haven't seen every episode... read more

Flashpoint

Flashpoint
10/9c CBS
The SRU team members are given a delicate assignment: rescue a baby who is being held hostage. The kid is taken when a carjacker steals the vehicle the baby is in. It all comes to a climax at a seedy motel where the captor, who may be a serial killer, is staying. — Tim Holland

Eureka

9/8c Syfy
At the end of last week's episode, we saw the gang return to a slightly different Eureka than the one they knew before they traveled back in time to the town's foundation. While the charming-yet-devious Trevor (James Callis) adjusts to skipping 60 years of history, Fargo acclimates to a surprising career change. Let's hope his new job description includes these words: "Must know how to deal with red indoor lightning."

Read on for previews of Eureka, Whale Wars, DC Cupcakes, The Jensen Project, Golf and Supernatural. read more

Flashpoint's Enrico Colantoni: "We're Really Finding Our Stride"

Flashpoint - Hugh Dillon, Enrico Colantoni

During Flashpoint's third season, the members of the Strategic Response Unit are drawn closer together than ever, something series star Enrico Colantoni says was also true when the cameras weren't rolling.

Check out photos of the Flashpoint cast

"Every show takes a while to find its legs, and where CBS ended the last season, we were really finding our stride," Colantoni tells TVGuide.com. "The camaraderie of the unit — and of us as actors and crew members — was really clicking, so what you're going to see now is much more intense."

Indeed, in Friday's episode (9/8c on CBS), team leader Ed Lane (Hugh Dillon), Sgt. Gregory Parker (Colantoni) and the rest of the SRU are tasked with ... read more
